    Weve been waiting for you

    Hello!

    I’d like to know which sentences is (more) correct. Here is the context: some people are waiting in a room for a friend. As soon as he comes in, one of them say:

    1. Come in, we’ve been waiting for you!
    2. Come in, we was waiting for you!

    Thanks a lot!

    1 is more correct, but the punctuation could be improved.

    'Come in. We've been waiting for you.'

    Re: Weve been waiting for you

    1 is correct. 2 is incorrect because of the word after "We". What should it have been?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
